The station broadcasts 24 hours a day on 107.1 FM. Because Ashford has an existing commercial station, AHBS Community Radio has not been permitted to take paid on-air advertising or sponsorship. The station is funded entirely by grants, donations and subscriptions.
AHBS (Ashford Hospital Broadcasting Service) has been broadcasting hospital radio to Ashford's hospitals since 1971. AHBS applied for a licence to operate a community station for Ashford, and were granted the new community station licence by OFCOM in May 2009.
